I agree.
One addition. If there is a deadbeat trader among us, spreading the word is a good thing. We are ALL busy, and wasting time burning cd's for those who don't have the coutesy to be honest is not my bag, baby.

I don't care if the recipient has nada to offer, but be honest. Don't promise if you can't deliver. That goes for LIFE, as well as trading.

Ain't no time to hate...

High FlLow, Dude- you do not even see that you contradict yourself in your short post...why close with "Ain't no time to hate" when the rest of your post is full of words, vitriol, and name calling and holier than thou trading attitude that Scrim was talking about- I say to you- how in the hell do you know that someone who "promised" to do some trading in a timeframe did not have their dog break out in pustules that were bleeding, or their wife taken to an institution because she is bi-polar and went off her meds?

What kind of infantile logic or semblance of reason lead you to conclude that because someone made some kind of "promise" and, in your mind, was not quick enough to act, that they are being dishonest? Did you even understand the man who started this post?

Ain't no time to hate? There is nothing BUT hate in your words. Spread the word around? What? Did any one rob anybody here? Did anyone on this forum hurt anyone in your family? You would disparage and LIBEL someone if you did not even know their circumstances? Would you even bother to find out?

Ain't no time to hate- transference at its best- Do you truly believe that your closing statement means anything at all in light of your post and other posts you have made here? If you want to go all "honest" on us- be honest with yourself first- telling everyone to spread the word based on what? Thankfully there are enough mature people here, mostly the lurkers, who see right through this facade-

I do not hate you- I do not even dislike you- I pity you, actually, and just hope that you are under the age of 35- there is much more wisdom to come if you are- A few folks here tried to talk someone out of providing me with cassettes of shows he now has on hard media- he paid no mind and went right ahead and sent them- And what has been the result so far? I may not have shipped a single cassette copy to anyone- but every musical reference I have made in the last few weeks to shows were shows I heard on the cassettes-

I have shared some great musical moments with everyone here- and some did appreciate it. It really is sad you have to pull out your johnson here and say how much bigger it is- the more heavily you trade, the bigger your johnson-

Well my good friend- and I say that with all due respect, as you are simply another part of myself, the next time you want to disparage MY name or reputation, remember this- I suffer from a biochemical disorder known as Adult Attention Deficit disorder-

ADD as it is known, and I have said this briefly before, is very debilitating- It affects the person's ability to organize and structure their life- it makes a person want to do ten things at once and once you start one of them- another thought takes you away someplace else- I do it no justice here as it is late tonight- but I encourage you to read this link http://www.faslink.org/adhdtips.htm

Here is an excerpt:

Remember that what you have is a neuropsychiatric condition. It is genetically transmitted. It is caused by biology, by how your brain is wired. It is NOT a disease of the will, nor a moral failing. It is NOT caused by a weakness in character, nor by a failure to mature. It's cure is not to be found in the power of the will, nor in punishment, nor in sacrifice, nor in pain. ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS.

Would you hold it against a blind person that they could not see?

If I made promises I have not delivered on- it is not because I am dishonest- not because I am selfish, not because I am a deadbeat- it is because for me to structure time and place it is a monumenal task

Do you enjoy making fun of mental illness? Do you enjoy calling mentally ill people names?

I doubt it- not your inner self.

Aint no time to hate....brother, you gave youself your own answer- as soon as you stop hating, you will start living and I truly hope that happens for you

Last I looked, this was not a tapers forum- there are plenty of those around- and last I looked, I was told by those who gave to me to offer it back- and I have- but mostly locally- and I am technologically challenged-

I am none of the things that were said about me on the thread about band misdirections- what is hilarious about that thread is the person I was calling a troll had actually responded to my post about unique eyes of the World New YEar 83 ( a cassette I heard)- I went to the wrong thread to respond to him- that is why no one could figure out who I was calling out- go back to the eyes thread and you will see the guy who remarked I had too much time on my hands if I was listening to that show

The pack behavior that ensued, the fur ripping and bloodletting was a thing of pure beauty- I was otherwise occupied much of the holiday and had no idea I was the roasted turkey for dinner...HA....all because an assumption was made that what you read here is somehow a reality- it is not- it is cyberspace- it is not real time- I had not called anyone out in a month- Dire and I had made peace, so it would be illogical I was calling him a troll- but few think- most react- so human- so mammalian

If anyone made it this far, scrim was right- and for those who think I have deprived you of anything call me at 201-330-0763- I will be glad to see what I can do for you in gettin you what I have that you might need.

Wow. I was ready for bed and looking for Dire's last witty post and find this.

This is the 1st time I've ever been addressed in this manor.

Liam, you have made so many assumptions, which is what you criticize me of doing. 'Honestly', it's not worth my breath. You're a prick and you have taken the fun out of this forum. The quintessential wet-blanket.

I read your post. PLEASE don't pity me. Compared to yours, my life is fuckin' cupcakes!

Oh my good fucking god! Way to go Liam, calling out 'high flow', a person as near to being an artisan of generosity as i have found on this forum. Liam, your too verbose post is just chock-full of the high-and-mighty and the look-at-poor-me, but interesting in that you took it off line to work things out with 'direwolf', and didn't at least show the same respect to 'high flow'. And for someone who claims all these mental issues, you sure are able to mentally navigate around these threads better than everyone else it seems, with your great recall ability of who said what and where.

Get real or stay dead. You are _persona non grata_ to me.

(I'll choose not to respond to scrim - methinks he may misunderstand a couple of things)

my beef with Liam was due to no communications at all coming from him after an offer(s) were made. He and I have emailed each other and all is worked out and we are on good terms (he explained his side and I mine - and Im pretty sure we are cool once again).

Pretty sure other people I trade/share with on this site know I keep up with my side of the bargain (yes, highflow the kimocks are being mailed tomorrow - lol)

and btw - did someone annoint me KING OF THE FORUM???? cool beans!!! was there any prize that accompanied the coronation - if so, i must have been "in abstentia" at the time, so please forward it at earliest convenience :)

ok, so this isn't a sexual come-on to you Dire or anything, so please don't take it as such....
But can I be QUEEN of the forum?? =) I mean I pretty much think I might be the only girl out here... (any other girls??) So can I just elect myself that? (see, just like a woman... taking over!) LOL!


No seriously, J/K! =)
I know I've mentioned it before, but I am someone who trades, the good-old fashioned way, thru smail-mail! And I have to tell you I LOVE IT! It's totally fun and I've met the coolest people because you discuss what shows you have and which are your faves. In the past year I've encountered only 2 people who have said they would follow thru and haven't. Yes, I lost disks, but I look at it as I'm 'spreading the love.' I know that I could very easily learn bit torrent or downloading (ok, maybe not so easy) and all that, but then my fun would be gone. And I wouldn't have as many cool friends as I do now!

Oh wait, that's right! ... I was attacked a few times when I first got here, had to explain myself over and over, AND was mistaken for a guy... about 3 different times!
But see, I stuck it out!! That's why I'm the Queen! =D

Stop kissing Wolf ass! Doesn't the hair stick to your tongue?? All of you, with your big puckered smackers firmly attached to his fat(allegedly)furry butt.

Dire, The Burger King, is no ruler I'll follow. He's got nothing better to do than incite tension on an ordinarily kind and calm forum. You all bend over for him....nice!;p

Hey, If I bend over for him, then...well you can imagine!
And I already said this wasn't going to be sexual...


But buddy, and everybody else reading, you gotta lighten up. I hear what your sayin, but honestly, just becuause he (dire) posts more, and lets his attitude (and I would like to think humor too), come out, doesn't make him king of anything. You are free to post as much too, and say anything you want too. No one is stopping anyone from participating.
You know what I find funny. Go look at the Forum Professions thread... see how long that is! And A LOT of people posted, who don't normally post. Maybe it was the fact that they felt comfortable answering a simple question. So someone try and ask another simple question. And every now and then when we come upon Dire's attitude (and humor) or anyone else's, take it for what it is. entertaining. smile and move on.

He's an emotional wrecking-ball. I couldn't care-less if lashes and gnashes, but kids like Max are being eaten daily. We're all wading in this bloody pool once known as GD forum.

He's like Skura, the Gentle Shark(if you get that referrence, you know comedy). He bites your leg off, then apologizes for the inconvenience.

I will no longer call him my friend, or at least until I send a thank-you for the Kimock. After that, he's back on my shit-list...meany!:-0><
